View Full Version : Smooth Navigational Menu (v1.5) + IE6

01-13-2011, 07:23 AM
I tested yesterday this script => Smooth Navigational Menu ... but found a trouble mit the new jQuery 1.4.4 and IE 6. The third ul will not open.

Folder 2 > Folder 2.1 | end (ie6)
Folder 2 > Folder 2.1 > Folder 3.1.1 > ... (ie7)

If I changed it to jQuery 1.3.2 - it works fine!
What is the difference of the two versions? 1.3.2 vs. 1.4.4

My current solution is now:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.js"></script>

<!--[if lte IE 6]>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

... is not the best way, but it works!

Has anybody a fix for Smooth Navigational Menu + IE6?

THX in advance

IE 6, with its plummeting share of the browser market is now a legacy browser. By year's end it will likely be used by less that 3% of the browsing public, and in any case be in continued rapid decline. See the second graph at:


In light of that, your solution doesn't seem all that bad.

As to your question about jQuery versions, have you tried jQuery 1.4.2? It might work out. The differences between 1.3.2 are (there could be others) could be summed up as:

1.3.2 was the most stable and last version of the 1.3.x series. The 1.4.x series is still feeling its way, though 1.4.2 was pretty stable. The 1.4.x series adds features and is more streamlined (efficient in execution, and less code overall) than is 1.3.2
